Below is the full statement from Police on last night's incident. In addition, there is no further update on Davis as he remains in Serious Condition at IU Health Bloomington Hospital. Further details will be updated as they are known. It is important to note that the legal limit for those over 21 is .08 which is why Holt is not considered to be "intoxicated."


At approximately 12:45 a.m. this morning, the Bloomington Police Department investigated a single car traffic accident involving a pedestrian at 17th and Indiana Avenue near IU Athletics facilities.

Information gathered at the scene indicates that the driver of a white 2012 Jeep Liberty, Emmitt D. Holt, 18, had just dropped off a passenger, Devin L. Davis, Jr., 19, in the parking lot of Memorial Stadium on the IU campus. According to the driver and other witnesses in the vehicle, Holt then exited the parking lot to travel west on E. 17th Street. For reasons unknown, all witnesses indicated that Davis then entered the roadway and was struck by the front passenger side of Holt's vehicle. Damage to the vehicle was located near the passenger side front fender and windshield.

Upon the arrival of emergency personnel, Davis was located lying on the north side of E. 17th Street. He was unconscious and had a head injury. Davis was transported to IU Health Bloomington Hospital and his current injury status is unknown.

The driver, Emmitt D. Holt, had been consuming alcohol, but was not intoxicated. He was issued citations for Illegal Consumption of Alcohol (Misdemeanor) and for Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol Under Age 21 (Infraction).
